More About the Author
From the Author:
"I started writing in Grade 5. I wrote a story about some animals in a forest that was being threatened by logging. I made it into a homemade book with illustrations I had done myself. My teacher found it in my desk at school and made me read it to the class. I vividly remember this next part. A girl in the class (who is now one of my best friends!) spoke up and said I had copied the movie Fern Gully. Perhaps I had been inspired by the movie but I had written that story myself from my own ideas. Then my teacher, who everyone in the class pretty much hated and thought was a witch out of the Roald Dahl novel, said to me in this doomful voice "Next time use your own brain!" I never wrote fiction again until I was an adult. Its amazing how a young person's creativity can be squashed so easily by a negative and harsh criticizing adult.
When I was in grade 8, I started writing poetry. This became my passion and its never ceased being so. As a teenager I was depressed and writing poetry was an outlet for me. Later this outlet turned me into a writer devoted to the art of poetry. I have not published any poems but I have lots of poems I may one day publish. I write confessional poetry mainly and my biggest inspiration is Sylvia Plath.
I started writing fiction again in my early twenties. I started by writing a fanfiction for the TV show Alias to which I was obsessed with at the time. After finishing the novel length fanfiction, I turned to original fiction and I've been in love with writing fiction ever since.
My debut novel is Entangled in Darkness. I spent 2 years on this novel and wrote my heart and soul into it. It was inspired by my own experiences working and studying mental health, as a survivor of suicide, and from my own personal experiences. This was the novel I had to write in order to release the tension inside of me. So I wrote it, a fictional story inspired by real struggles of those that have mental illness or family members and friends with mental illness.
Now that I've written that, I plan to continue writing and explore other areas such as science fiction and fantasy which I love to read. I love space. I love the idea of space travel and the idea of worlds foreign to us in a vast universe we'll never know all of. So that's where my writing is heading next."
